The Person

Aleksandra is a fan of the classical arts, especially ballet, and tries to both dance and watch whenever she can. She loves museums, and will happily spend days on end wandering the halls of the Met. She also enjoys getting outside whenever possible to play tennis, row, or do anything near the ocean. If she isn’t dancing or out in nature, she is probably reading, watching completely randomly selected documentaries, or travelling to visit far-flung family and friends.
